Update On "Corn Shields" Cornhead Crop Dividers
I wanted to let FARM SHOW readers know about the latest developments with my cornhead crop dividers, called "Corn Shields" (Vol. 19, No. 6).
The triangular attachments bolt to each side of the combine header and deflect ears back into the header, saving at least 3 to 5 bu. per acre in standing crops where corn borers are a problem.
GVL of Litchfield, Minn., which makes poly corn head snouts, recently signed a 5-year agreement with me to manufacture and distribute the shields. Three models will be avail-able to fit virtually any corn head. The photo (that's me with the shields) shows the patented poly dividers that fit Deere, Case-IH and GVL headers. They sell for $219 for heads fitted with GVL poly gathering shields and $199 for heads with factory metal shields. You can reach GVL at 59711 Highway 12 West, Litchfield, Minn. 55355; ph toll-free 888 485-8411 or 320 693-8411. (Herald Barton, 19052 Kale Ave., Silver Lake, Minn. 55381; ph 612 327-2217)
